Error /Warning message

Postby Newbie123 » 14. September 2009 03:47

Hi,

I am a new at XAMPP and new at anything technical. I did inherit a Joomla Website and would like to have a copy of the site in my local PC. A person I hired installed the XAMPP but was unable to get it fully running. It seems he did not know as much when problems occur in the installation. Anyway we had the site running but the scrollable menu does not work -with the following error/warning messages:

Warning: Parameter 1 to superfish_modMainMenuHelper::buildXML() expected to be a reference, value given in C:\xampp\htdocs\mprsite\libraries\joomla\cache\handler\callback.php on line 99

Warning: Parameter 1 to superfish_modMainMenuHelper::buildXML() expected to be a reference, value given in C:\xampp\htdocs\mprsite\libraries\joomla\cache\handler\callback.php on line 99

How do I fix this? I don't know if it matters but my hosting site phpmyadmin version is older that what I installed? Can someone help me

Thanks,

Newbie

Your questions should be asked over at the Joomla site.

To test your XAMPP installation go to http://localhost in your browser and after selecting your language exercise the menu items in the left hand panel - if all are working without errors then your XAMPP installation is working as it should.

check your local PHP-Version with phpinfo().

Joomla doesn't support PHP5.3 yet. If this is your PHP-Version you habe 2 Opinions:

- Wait for the next stable Joomla release
or
- Install an older XAMPP-Version (e.g. v1.7.1)

... or simply switch off error reporting, as all of these messages are only warnings (no errors).

After that, Joomla runs without any hassles on my PHP 5.3 installation.

Thanks for all who replied- good info.

Follow up questions asked previously, How do you turn off error reporting? Where do you go to do changes?

Thanks,

the php.ini setting is named "display_errors" and can be switched in more than one way:

- centrally in the php.ini (for all your projects together)

- in a .htaccess File for the whole folder (for example in your Joomla root-folder) on this way:
Code: Select all
php_flag display_errors off


- in your php-file(s) itself
Code: Select all
<?php
ini_set('display_errors', 0);
?>


Alternatively you can customize your error_reporting setting to just don't display NOTICES or DEPRECATED Messages. There are some examples given in your php.ini file.
